Recently the Department of Health finalised its grant agreements with both GP colleges to deliver GP training from February 1, 2023.

After 20 years leading GP training delivery in WA, WAGPET will hand over the custodianship of this important work.
We have an agreed transition out plan that we are working to and our employees are committed to serving and supporting you right up to 31 January, 2023.
We have been hosting monthly webinars since April to provide the latest information about transition to all registrars, supervisors and practice managers. 
The colleges now have their own communication plans and we will support them to ensure this information is made available to you.  While WAGPET won’t be hosting webinars, we are here to talk to you and answer your questions as always.
Many of you have been asking about our employees and if they will be taking up roles with the GP colleges.  All WAGPET staff are being supported to pursue future job opportunities available in GP training.
At an Australia General Practice Training (AGPT) transition workshop on Tuesday, 9 August, in Canberra, WAGPET CEO, Dr Janice Bell was given the responsibility on behalf of all regional training organisations across Australia to outline the achievements of the AGPT program over the last 20 years.
The Hon Mark Butler MP, Minister for Health and Aged Care, attended the workshop.  Janice provided the Minister with a hard copy summary of the presentation – a snapshot of two decades of progress.  You can view this snapshot here.  There is a lot we should recognise, value and celebrate as we begin a new era of reform. 
Our doors are open, we are working hard and here to serve you until we hand over the baton officially on 1 February, 2023.

If you have any questions about the transition to college-led training please contact WAGPET’s CEO Janice Bell on
